Basically, it has come down to these two projectors, but there are no direct comparisons...and i want to know if it is worthwhile to spend the extra $1200 (USD) for the Sony. The source will be interlaced, we have an older Toshiba DVD player. The room is fairly large, and we are planning a 106" diagonal screen (high contrast white). The thing i really like about the Sanyo is the lens shift, since the ceilings in our house are fairly tall, and the screen is going to be in a recessed area nearer the floor, it is essentially impossible to mount the projector at the centerline of the screen. I am definetly leaning most heavily towards the Sanyo, but i want some more opinions on the Sony vs the Sanyo. Thanks for all help in advance! btw, this will be used almost exclusivly for the foreseeable future for DVDs, we do not have an HDTV feed, and i doubt that we'll get one anytime soon.
